The Block Arcade

While in Melbourne, Australia, there was a day where I didn't have any concrete plans so i headed into the city by myself. I ventured to The Block Arcade, a beautiful 19th century shopping arcade filled with shops, cafes and a popular tea room with the most delectable looking cakes and pastries lining the window. I leisurely perused the arcade and enjoyed taking in the gorgeous architecture, with its mosaic-tile floors, glass canopy and carved stone. I only wish I had tried one of the mouth-watering cakes at Hopetoun Tea Rooms, but salivating at these pictures will have to suffice until my next trip.
